Smith, more than a cowboy hat

To the editor,

1) His leadership style is inclusive and effective, earning him prestigious awards from both state and federal agencies for his competence and diligence during the 416 Fire.

2) His excellent record of fiscal responsibility. Having the largest budget of any county agency, he has saved $2 million over three years! And he brought in $750,000 of new outside revenue at no cost to taxpayers. He also acquired over $250,000 worth of emergency equipment – at virtually no cost to the county.

3) He’s a Desert Storm veteran. He understands and upholds the Constitution of the United States. Not only the Second Amendment but the entire document!

The responsibility of this office requires more than a big cowboy hat and promises; it needs hard work, experience and proven leadership.

Vote for Sean Smith for Sheriff.
